I have been deaf my whole life and ASL is my first language. I have a wonderful deaf husband and two hearing children who have been signing since infancy. Both have been signing fluently for many years. I have been teaching beginner/ intermediate signs for various ages since 1985. My teaching skills include basic, intermediate, advanced signs, emphasis, and proper and clear signing. I'd like to make all students feel as comfortable as possible and will pay attention to the needs/ goals of each student. You will pick it up more quickly than you think! I intend to teach students to enjoy learning ASL. I have a lot of patience! Don't worry, you'll do great :)

I love classes with Tammy! She's very patient and encouraging. She makes sure to cater class to you so you're learning signs you will likely come across day to day.
Tammy is awesome! I’ve taken ASL classes from Tammy for close to a year and am so happy with everything I’ve learned. The best way to learn ASL is from a Deaf teacher and, after taking classes from Tammy, I understand why. Tammy is a patient, positive, thorough, and fun teacher. She has taught me so much about Deaf culture, as well, and I have grown so much from my lessons with her. I would highly recommend Tammy!
Tammy was very patient and understanding. She listened to what I wanted to focus on and helped me reach my goals. Half of our lessons ended up just being conversations and I honestly feel that was one of the best ways to learn sign. I CANT SAY THANK YOU ENOUGH TAMMY!
